Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

The original name was: "Prime preceding phi(n)". However, this is true only for n >= 7 from which onward phi(n) is guaranteed to get only composite values. For n = 3, 4 and 6 for which phi(n) = 2, a(n) = 2 also.

FORMULA

a(1) = a(2) = 0 (by convention), and for n >= 3, a(n) = A007917(A000010(n)). - Antti Karttunen, Dec 05 2017

EXAMPLE

phi(10)=4, hence a(10)=3.
